The Weatherford College Wise County Student Nurses Association and the WC Jazz Band are hosting Warm Bowls, a special event benefiting the Wise Area Relief Mission (WARM) on Tues., March 4.

Members of the WCWC Student Nurses Association have made community service a tenet of their student practice beginning with collecting coats and cans for WARM. In continuation of this effort, the students are now presenting Warm Bowls –– a charity event based on empty bowls as a grass-roots effort to end hunger.

Warm Bowls will take place in the Weatherford College Wise County campus cafeteria. Dinner is at 6 p.m., and is sponsored by Dos Chiles of Bridgeport and the Decatur Civic Center. A jazz concert will follow from 7-8:30 p.m.

The evening will also include an auction of pottery bowls hand crafted by jazz band members and student nurses in a community project facilitated by Sunshine Glaze of Southlake.

Tickets to Warm Bowls are $50 and can be purchased by contacting WCWC Student Nurses Association President Kim Taylor at 940-255-2228 orl Stacy Wilkins in the WCWC business office at 940-626-3234. All proceeds go to WARM. Seating is limited.
